The vibration Perception Threshold VPT has been shown to be strongly associated with foot ulceration. VPT determination by using a Digital Biothesiometer has been used to identify peripheral sensory neuropathy and subjects at risk of the foot. Digital Biothesiometer helps us quantitate the threshold and monitor progressive changes or trends on following up testing.
Sensory neuropathy increases the risk of foot ulcerations by seven-fold and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) by three folds in people with diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy is the major causal factor in the development of foot ulcerations among diabetic subjects.
Early detection helps better prevention. Prevention is better than no cure. 50% of all non-traumatic amputations occur in diabetes which is a high-risk group.
